About Badwater Fire Company:

Many people believe that music has already had its golden age; that the ideas that were fresh and new will be forever repeated. Indeed, it is fact that modern music builds itself almost entirely from musical phrases and norms developed sometime ago. That does not mean however, that all music produced today is destined to repeat the past. The very existence of our flourishing music scene reveals the public's desire for something new. If everyone were truly bored there would be no concerts, no downloads, no merchandise. The music fans of today are desperately calling for something original and exciting. Their cries echo together and ask, "Where has the purity and excitement in music gone?"

Badwater Fire Company might just be the answer to that question. With an overwhelming range of influences, Badwater Fire Company is intent on rebuking the adage "seen that, heard that." By moving from songs such as "Birdseye", a western revenge tune with a touch of progressive flair, onto "The Fuel and The Fire", a musical journey through Americana, funk, jazz, and death metal, Badwater Fire Company is showing the public they can manipulate music to become something new once again.

The devious mind of founder Shane Rossmiller creates complex guitar lines coupled with raw, soulful vocal harmonies. Bassist Michael Pearson, a bass player with the skill and precision of a lead guitarist, and Drummer Matthew Singler, a classically educated drummer with the ability to create something unique and new with every driving beat, complete the wall of sound that is Badwater Fire Company. With a foundation of classic American rock, Badwater can appeal to and attract both elementary rock fans and classic connoisseurs alike. On any given night, Badwater Fire Company can draw a substantial crowd by appealing to a plethora of genres. The name alone is beginning to create and exciting stir in the Northwest. The public is quickly beginning to realize that Badwater is not your average band.

The raw energy and emotion that a Badwater Fire Company live show exudes is truly worth experiencing. Badwater is a classic power trio that covers a wide range of musical tasks. For each member, Badwater is a journey, an opportunity to progress both as a group and individually. It's a doorway to a deeper knowledge of music, its inner workings, its history and its infinite possibilities.

I didn't know what was in store for me when I began listening to Badwater Fire Company's album. The music was not what I was expecting. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the different genres the band used. Badwater Fire Company is "up and coming" no more. They have arrived!!

A departure from the norm...
If you were to take jazz, death metal, progressive rock, soul, funk, and a little but of an ass-kicking, throw them all into a can, shake it up and come out with something "much more than a soup" you would get Badwater Fire Company's brilliant debut. From the onset your ears are treated to an exhilarating departure from the "norm" in today's music scene with "Much More Than a Soup", a roller-coaster of emotions in it's self with the changes in tempo and serene stand-still moments it lives up to it's name's sake. To be noted on the album are the excellent transitions between tracks, leading right into "Birdseye". The lead guitar riff definitely parallels the story told by Shane Rossmiller as it feels as if it were a lap steel wielding the riff to a very western aura, leading into a superb shredding of the fret-board and a heart felt chorus of "We've crossed paths before, one year ago in Cheyenne..." . From there the album will guide you through an amazing journey of drum-fills, amazingly precise and funky bass lines, to shredding guitar solos and soaring vocals, along with an incredibly epic 10 minute+ 2 song extravaganza, to an ending that leaves you BEGGING for more. Badwater Fire Company's debut sets the bar to a new height for any upcoming band in the Pacific Northwest, a masterful showcase of musician-ship and blending of genres. After listening to this album, I look forward to following this band for years to come. Cheers! You guys blew me away with this one
